Former Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein is headed to jail after being found guilty for two felony counts in New York.


While Weinstein still faces charges in California, he'll begin his sentence immediately. New York County District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. named the survivors at the press conference and said that they made history.

"Rape is rape," he said, regardless of when it happened. "Weinstein is a vicious, serial, sexual predator, who used his power to threaten, rape, assault, trick, humiliate, and silence his victims."

He closed by saying that he hopes this verdict inspires more rape survivors to come forward.

It was a sentiment that many on the internet shared.
